A short video by myrmecostore showing the gruesome aftermath of a Prenolepis mating flight:

I can’t imagine anything more unpleasant than being sucked dry by a crab spider latched to my skull. Other than the same, but simultaneously being assaulted by a sex-crazed drone swarm.

I guess you could never accuse Prenolepis nitens males of being overly picky about their mates.
